There are some definite behavioral patterns in the medical spa industry. One of the most consistent of these behaviors occurs after a patient receives toxin products (like Botox, Dysport or Xeomin) for the first time. That is, patients often have a similar epiphany which is some version of, “This is great! Why did I wait so long?”
Reason # 1: Patients who may have found the concept of getting facial injectable aversive are often surprised by how quick and painless the procedure generally is.
Generally, the injectable portion of your appointment lasts a few short minutes and you can resume most everyday activities immediately after the appointment.
Reason # 2: Start the muscle atrophy process early as a preventative step against the formation of deep wrinkles.
Toxin products like Botox, Xeomin and Dysport smooth facial wrinkles by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin. When the muscles are relaxed, they prevent the formation of new wrinkles in the treated area.
Reason # 3: Results may last longer over time.
Generally, the first time you receive one of these injectables, you will be ready for another dose in 3-4 months. With regular use, muscle atrophy occurs, so you will be able to go for longer periods of time between injections while maintaining a smooth and wrinkle-free appearance between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes (crows feet).
Reason # 4: Gradual onset of product
Oftentimes, patients are reluctant to try new things because they don’t want others to know that they had anything done in the medical spa. With toxin products, the results are gradual, starting at about 3 days post injection and reaching their full potential by around two weeks. This process ensures a natural evolution into the new, younger appearing you!
Regardless of reason, it’s always a good idea to schedule a consultation with a reputable provider before you start your injectable regimen. To schedule your consultation with renowned injection artist, Martine Abbey, simply call our spa concierge at (702) 562-2882.
